Foodie in Fort Worth....I must be crazy!

I tried driving to work this morning, but the icy roads and stupid drivers were a nightmare. Finally, after 45 minutes and barely 3 miles from home, all I wanted to do was get my car back home safely.

I parked my car and decided to walk to the supermarket about a half mile from home. Somewhere in the drive to work I had formulated a plan that if I couldn't get to work I'd do my daily 3 mile run on the treadmill and then I would make a pot of turkey chili. I didn't have any ground turkey, but had all the other ingredients.

I couldn't walk on the sidewalk since it was a sheet of ice, so I walked in the parkway and trudged through snowdrifts up to a foot! The wind has been blowing over 30mph and the current temp is 20. The windchill is -2.

But....I'm gonna make a big pot of chili and some jalapeno cornbread. I don't need to run since the trek to the store was quite the workout. I'm thankful I didn't slip on the ice or get knocked down by the wind.

This may not be the best pot of chili I've ever made, but it certainly has taken the most effort!
